May13, "Medicines" EDiM for Sydney Sketch Club

Are you enjoying this daily challenge? Now, my imagination is a medical doctor. I sketched a lady doctor at their lunch break. The kind doctor gave me permission. They were young doctors. Senior doctors teach them at hospital. A mass noun, "medicine" also means medical science. Yes, this lady is in medicine. A word, "medicine" has a medical meaning and a social meaning such as punishment (for well being) and an unpleasant substance. Social meanings interest me lot! A phrasal verb and and an idiom amuse me. Check "take one's medicine" and "a taste of one's own medicine." Ahahaha, the idiom sounds like a revenge! These expressions seem to have developed from a "bitter" medicine (oh, we hate it.)
Btw, Australian English has heavily influenced by British English. So, a word, "drug" is not used for a medicine here. American friends, which do you use, a "drug" or a "medicine" in a daily life, when you say a prescribed medicine in a positive meaning?
Do you have any funny episodes about a word, "medicine"?
I hope one day, all medical doctors will lose their job or be unemployed on the earth = No one is sick. Any deceases and sickness will disappear. All of us, human beings will be healthy! May my wish come true one day.

A tomorrow's theme is something in the style of Monet. (Aw, who set that theme?!) 

Friends, Happy Painting!

  3. This lady will make a very good doctor. Her pleasant smiling demeanor will solve half the problems. Wish all doctors smiled and showed positive energy like this. There will be no need for drugs or prescribed medicines. Or is it the magic of your brush...just wondering!

    1. Oh, sweet AK, thank you for a lovely comment! Like you said, her smile captured my attention and interest. Indeed, a smile gives lots and it costs us nothing. So, I smile as much/many as possible, even at random!! Best wishes, Sadami
